Xfce 4.13 Development COPR Repo Available for Fedora

By Andrew Powell, published 14/05/2017 in Development

For those wanting to try out the latest development version packages for Xfce 4.13 (which will become 4.14 at the stable release) in Fedora, user 'nonamedotc' has set up a COPR repo to try out.

The COPR repo provides packages for Rawhide, Fedora 25 and Fedora 26 and as one can imagine, anything that goes wrong and/or makes your computer catch on fire is completely at your own risk. It is after all, for testing purposes.

Enabling the COPR repo is easy with the dnf command:

dnf copr enable nonamedotc/xfce-414

nonamedotc says to report any bugs to the "Pagure" git repo, which allows submitting issues in a similar way to GitHub. For more on that, see nonamedotc's blog post.

Being Xfce, I don't personally imagine there will be too much in the way of instability or huge bugs, but still, take care and enjoy.
